    Devers is not in todays lineup

    True, but 5 runs still needed to be scored a few times, and the pitching staff "bench" has done well.
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?

    Noshida was Goshida Saturday with 3 hits, and hasnít played since. Kind of expensive DH to now being a platoon DH.

    Cora is easing him into it, trying to get his confidence back up.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    A lineup full of "household" names...maybe in their own households.

    I kept wondering why he wasn't IL'ed for 10 days. Then learned that Heineman was the last position player on the 40 and was already called up. No need to IL Raffy, unless you want to give another pitcher a short stint with the big club. And who needs pitching with this staff, lol?

    As far as I know there were no new injuries to the team yesterday.

    Well, you know Cora likes the RH hitters vs LH'ers , so Yoshi sits, ..... ......wait Lively is a RH pitcher

    In reality, Cora needs to get O'Neill back into game speed , and who were you going to sit to let Yoshi play. Why can't Masataka learn first base ? Let's say he is vertically challenged

    Both Casas and Devers have self-inflicted injuries from over-swinging. Only on the SOX would this seem not strange.

    Iím not saying NOshida should play, but heís an expensive DH/platoon guy.

    Notice how Dalbec is rarely if ever injured. It comes from not swinging too often or too hard. It was sad the other day to see Bobby get a rocket shot off but go straight to the 3Bman . Should have been a 2 rbi'er.

    Based on O'Neil's history of frailty, DH isn't the worst place for him. I guess Cora could platoon Masa and Refsnyder in the OF.
